GM Primary Care Staff Bank

Greater Manchester Workforce Bank

Greater Manchester has a primary care workforce bank hosted by Lantum.

Lantum is the UK’s leading digital staffing platform for primary care, connecting general practices with staff to fill rota gaps. The platform allows rota managers to post unfilled shifts, enabling a community of clinicians to search and apply for those shifts, all in one central location.
